Changing ec.timeout to 1000 or 10000 and changing ec.poll_time to 100
or 10000 had no visible effect. I don't seem to be getting any timeouts.
Setting ec.burst=0 fixes the problem according to the the "_TMP value
is absurd" messages.
Diffs between output of "sysctl -a | grep acpi" between an old kernel
without the problem and a new kernel with the problem:

16.0C is too low. Room temperature is 26C.
Before the absurd values were ignored, 3400+C was printed here. Now
the only evidence of the absurd values is the messages about them.

After setting ec.burst to 0, with no changes to timeouts, only one more
"absurd" message has been printed after 20 minutes, so the message seems
to have been for old state.

Possibly correct. 30.7C still seems low. ISTR tz2 usually being too
low in old kernels, but that may have only been the 15.9C ACx value.
With ec.burst=0, ec.timeout=3 seems to work but ec.timeout.2 causes
With ec.burst=1, ec.timeout=2 seems to work but ec.timeout=1 causes
Toggling physical AC power doesn't change "hw.acpi.acline: 0". ISTR
that this used to work.
